Should atripla be taken on an empty stomach, or is it better to have a little food to help absorption?
| Response from Dr. Wohl
Either way. But, if you take Atripla with food, the efavirenz portion is better absorbed and this can increase the risk of side effects from this med (dizziness, vivid dreams). If you notice no problem taking the med with food, go for it.
